We have the second video from CNN’s Connect the World, after the ﬁrst one on Matthew Williamson that was kindly offered to us to syndicate.
British fashion designer Betty Jackson is well-known across fashion circles for her beautiful clothing and is even responsible for designing the outrageous costumes on the hit television series, Absolutely Fabulous.
Jackson ﬁrst got her start in the fashion industry in 1973 when she began as a design assistant with Wendy Dagworthy.
She moved on to a few other positions before she set up her own design company.
Jackson has a ﬂagship store on Brompton Road and has also designed collections for some of the UK’s leading high street retailers, including Debenhams and Marks & Spencer.
Our video coverage of the autumn–winter shows is not complete, as we look at some of the menswear designers, which tend to ﬁll the ﬁnal day’s schedule.
J. W. Anderson’s men’s collection stuck with the black palettes that we saw for many of the womenswear collections, though as the show progressed, it was punctuated with whites, bronzes and oranges.
Christopher Shannon went more urban and sporting, with exposed pockets and extreme ruching, while sticking with blacks and greys.
Topman, meanwhile, showed a well designed range of suits and sweaters, both with with quality wools, and stood out with a bright red single-breasted coat.
We end this entry with highlights from day ﬁve, and an interview with Paloma Faith and Marina Diamandis.
